Every season the Social Team work to provide a full program of ride-outs and social evenings to give members the opportunity to discuss skills and motorcycle training.

See our events calendar for details.


Updated September 2, 2021

Our monthly meetings provide an opportunity to make friends, share experiences and to catch up on club news.

During the winter months, meetings are held on the second Monday of the month and often feature a presentation by a guest speaker. Previous speakers have included:

  • i2i Motorcycle Academy
  • Great North Air Ambulance Service

Everyone is welcome at our monthly meetings. Please feel free to come along and have a look at us! Check out our social event listing page for details.

During the summer we prefer to be out on our motorbikes! Meetings take the form of evening rides, BBQs, chip shop runs, poker runs, treasure hunts, etc

Social Rides

Our full members social rideouts take place on the third Sunday of each month throughout the ‘biking season’. Rides are typically 150-200 miles.

All rides are considered ‘Green Badge’ events; the standard of riding must be commensurate with membership of NAM and the IAM. Your motorcycle must be taxed, insured and have a current MOT (if appropriate).

All riders taking part must be familiar with the ‘drop-off’ system.


For insurance reasons, our social rides are restricted to riders who are full and current members of both the IAM and NAM.

Training Rides

We provide all members with opportunities to refresh, develop and build upon their advanced road riding skills in the company of an IMI-qualified National Observer.

The success of Northumbria Advanced Motorcyclists is due the generosity of its members; riders and friends who freely give their time and exerptise to help other motorcyclists and to support club events.

Whatever your strengths, whether creative, mechanical, good at writing or good with people, get involved! Contact a member of our marketing, social or training teams to find out what they are working on and how you can help.


73 Members are collecting free donations everytime they shop on-line. These donations go directly towards helping us to promote motorcycle road safety.

If NAM has helped you to improve your riding skills, please consider joining EasyFundraising so that we may help other riders.


Those members who use AmazonSmile   will find “Northumbria Advanced Motorcyclists” as one of the charities available.

Gift Aid

If you are a UK tax-payer, NAM could claim back £5 tax on your subsciption from HMRC. That would make your subscription worth £25 to the club.

£5 may not sound like a lot but, across the entire membership, gift aid could make a significant contribution to club funds.
